workaround for "console is not shared" netra x1 lom error message
By fintanr on Sep 21, 2005
Ah, back to my "thank you for the informative error messages" postings. On a netra X1 box you may possibly get an error message such as
lom>console Console is not sharedwhich is not very helpful. Of course one would think that console -f would override this, but nope, it doesn't. So the work around, which will force a reboot of your machine is the following.
lom>bootmode reset_nvram lom>reset lom> LOM event: +128d+1h34m23s host reset lom>console oaf108 console login:and thats it. You can also connect directly to the serial port and reset your eeprom settings there as well.
